An MPGuino screen that has instant GPH or total fuel consumed will give you fuel data without needing any distance reference.

Looking at the wiki the "custom"

1. "Custom":
| MG Instant MPG | S Instant Speed |
| GH Instant GPH | C Current MPG |


8. "Tank":
| MH Tank MPH | MG Tank MPG |
| MI Tank Miles | GA Tank Gallons |


9. "EOC mi/Idle gal":
| CE Current EOC Miles | G Current Idle Gallons |
| TE Tank EOC Miles | G Tank Idle Gallons |

if you do some resets while getting your data the tank gallons will give you how much fuel you used durring each run, or because you are not giving the MPGuino any distance information it will assume that any fuel used is "idle"fuel. so idle gallons will give you how much fuel you used during each run.

From what I remember MPGUino will need 12v(battery +), 0v (ground) and a Fuel injector signal wire.

The two cars (escort and civic) I had my Guino installed in I tapped the signal wire near the ECU.


Learn from the mistakes of others, that way when you mess up you can do so in new and interesting ways.

One mile of road will take you one mile, one mile of runway can take you around the world.
